Amazing!I hope they put this guy in the Death Knight starting zone if they don't give us new lore for new death knights, like "The Lich King is indeed DEAD".

There is indeed lore for the new Death Knights. http://www.wowpedia.org/Quest:A_Special_Surprise (scroll down for Goblin and Worgen versions)

They don't have to change the Death Knight starting area to reflect the Lich King being "dead" (or, in the very least, there most likely won't be anymore death knights) because the DK starting zones have always been under the premise that you are playing in a time -before- the current events.It's the same for goblin and worgen death knights. The starting area is in a timeline previous to current events. After you do them, your character would then most likely find out that the Lich King has already been defeated and that Northrend's soldiers are there as a clean-up effort, for the most part.Blizzard have already stated they want to remake Northrend and Outland quests to reflect such changes.

So the Lich King is dead then there's a shattering which causes Gilneas to open so there are Gilnaen worgen that Arthas converts into Death Knights... Lol, what?

"So the Lich King is dead then there's a shattering which causes Gilneas to open so there are Gilnaen worgen that Arthas converts into Death Knights... Lol, what?"This was addressed in the Quests and Lore panel, I believe. Basically, Alex said that there was lore to support non-Gilnean worgen who became death knights. So if you're a worgen death knight, you are *not* a Gilnean worgen. So there's the answer to your Lol, what.

As an earlier commenter pointed out, "A Special Surprise" shows that yes, you (worgen) are Gilnean, but via Shadowfang Keep, not through the Gilneas quests.
